ABSTRACT
The article reports on the growth of foreign direct investment in Latin America. Somewhat coincidentally, the U.S. embarked on a campaign to enter into agreements providing protection to investors with as many Latin countries as possible. The U.S. has entered into CAFTA-DR (with the countries of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic), recent free trade agreements with Peru, and Colombia, with bilateral agreements soon expected with Panama, and possibly Ecuador.
